MONTREAL, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Office de consultation publique de Montréal announces that it will hold a public consultation on the future of the Saint-Raymond neighbourhood and the development of the area surrounding the new MUHC campus in N.D.G.
Citizens are invited to an activity that will be held in two parts on Tuesday, February 12. For the first part, beginning at 4:00 p.m. in the basement of Trinity Church (2146 Marlowe Avenue, Vendôme Metro Station), they are invited to visit the booths of numerous organizations involved in the project. These include the school board, on the planned opening of a new school in the neighbourhood, and Ville de Montréal, on bicycle paths and the development of the Upper Lachine/Crawley/Girouard tunnel.
The second part, beginning at 7:30 p.m., will feature presentations on various topics of interest, such as the densification of the neighbourhood, real estate development, affordable housing, transportation, notably active transportation, the Saint-Jacques cliff, the future of Upper Lachine Road, traffic on Saint-Jacques Street, and numerous other subjects. The presentations will be followed by a question period allowing citizens and groups to obtain all the information they want on the issues involved.
That exercise will be followed, four weeks later, by a hearing of opinions allowing those who wish to do so to express their views on the issues involved in the consultation. The first hearing of opinions will be held on Monday, March 11, at 7:00 p.m., at the Centre communautaire Saint-Raymond, located at 5600 Upper Lachine Road. To present an opinion, you must register with the Office no later than March 7, by calling Gilles Vézina at 514 872-8510, or registering directly at ocpm.qc.ca/inscription.
All available information on the project may be obtained at the offices of the OCPM, at 1550 Metcalfe Street, Suite 1414, and at the Direction du greffe at City Hall, 275 Notre-Dame Street East. The documentation is also available on the Office Web site, at www.ocpm.qc.ca.
